    March 2024 Classic Edition - U.S. Life Insurance COVID-19 Impact - A Mortality Claim Forecast

    Hey there Listeners!  We have a great Research Insights Podcast Classic to bring to you today.  Four years ago today at 5:00 p.m., the state of Illinois was under a statewide stay at home order due to COVID-19.  It was a scary time, and life as we knew it forever changed.  Around this time we published one in a series of special episodes focusing on COVID-19, and we thought it a good idea to pull this episode out of our archives, dust it off and share it with you all over again.  The episode is “U.S. Life Insurance COVID-19 Impact: A Mortality Claim Forecast." So, sit back, listen, and learn from this Research Insights Podcast Classic.

Mcklssr ,

This makes me look forward to Monday mornings.

If you are interested issues related to driver-less cars, risk management for federal governments, or protecting retirement income, then this is the podcast for you. The SOA research insights podcast provides useful information regarding research in both my field and related fields, as well as other interesting topics. It is a great way to start my work week.

Good for students

I’m a student and while I don’t understand all the technical details, I particularly enjoy when they discuss the potential futures for actuarial science. Also, I’ll be attending the 2018 SOA Annual Meeting so I might get a chance to meet some of these people.
